What to do Now in Your Garden!

Unsure about how to prepare your garden for spring? Follow these tips below and get as many jobs done as possible!

Lay turf:

Bare patches can appear on your lawn for plenty of reasons. Over raking and general use can cause brown patches to appear. hese gaps should be reseeded or returfed to prevent moss and weeds colonising the soil and to allow your lawn to look its best all year round.

Sow the patch with an appropriate seed mix, sprinkling half the grass seeds in one direction and the rest in the other. Lightly rake over the seed and protect it against birds with netting.

Alternatively, cut out the bare patch of lawn, rake the soil and add topsoil if needed then patch the gap with new pieces of turf.

Fill gaps in flower beds:

Some flowers die down with others thrive creating gaps in your flower beds. Fill the gaps with stunning spring flowers like Primulas and Polyanthus.

Leave any daffodil foliage out to die down (even the leaves) so the bulbs regenerate.

Plant our groups of beautiful Gladioli.

Sow flower seeds for a stunning summer display.

Welcome birds into your garden:

Avoid feeding your birds anything unhealthy, even bread can be a disaster! Let them instead feast on healthyfood such as fruit, nuts berries and insects.  Try one of our great bird seed mixes.

Keep water available at all times near feeders or on your bird table. Bird’s need it for drinking and to keep their wings in good condition.

Give your bird feeders a good clean with hot water and a scrubbing brush. It’s vital to keep your bird feeders clean to stop any diseases spreading amongst your beautiful garden birds.
